is located on the south side of the Musconetcong River in the northwest corner
of Hunterdon County. The name is derived from the Bloom family, who were
influential in the early history of the town. It was once part of Bethlehem
Township, but was incorporated as a separate borough in 1905.
The Borough was originally known as "Johnson's Iron Works," named
after the charcoal work of Robert Johnson on the north bank of the river. In
colonial days, ore from the Musconetcong Mountain was carried down to the river
and made into "blooms," masses of wrought iron from the forge. This
is another theory of how the Borough received its name.
Bloomsbury is the third smallest municipality in Hunterdon County. While the
20th century saw some expansion of Bloomsbury's residential area, the general character of Bloomsbury as a quiet, tree-lined, small
town still remains today. We are proud of our community and hope you enjoy your

Winter Snow Removal
After Council’s review of the
Borough’s snow removal practices, a decision was made that
that are difficult to navigate either by reason of their
man-made obstructions will be cleared when man power and
conditions permit. As
a result, if plow drivers of the Borough’s DPW determine in their
discretion that accessing or attempting to plow any of these
dangerous and could result in either damage to a borough vehicle
or to an adjoining
residence, snow will not be removed from those alleys until
conditions permit safe
passage for DPW vehicles.
This is in accordance with New
Jersey Statutory Regulations which only require removal of snow
and/or ice from
main thoroughfares within the Borough.
As a reminder alternate parking is available at the Borough owned
lot at the corner of North Street & Gardner Street. Parking is
at your own risk.
